Local police search for 'armed and dangerous' suspect


Waco police are searching for a man Thursday morning that they consider armed and dangerous.

Police blocked several streets and were conducting a house to house, yard by yard search for a man who abandoned his vehicle following an attempted traffic stop near N. 19th and Summer. The immediate area has been cleared, but officers are continuing their search for the man.

Authorities think they have the identity of the man because he lost his wallet as he fled his vehicle.  

He is believed to be the same man who eluded an officer earlier in the 3300 block of Lake Shore Drive. In that incident, the officer had conducted a traffic stop and the driver had fled and began a foot chase with police.

During the chase, he eluded the officer and made it back to his car and fled. 

A second officer spotted the suspected vehicle driving through a stop sign at 19th and Summer, and attempted to stop him again.

Several officers and Sheriff's Office deputies are involved in the search.
